HALIFAX, NS – Stillwell Brewing, the brewery off-shoot of Halifax craft beer bar Stillwell, has announced details of two new barrel-aged beers that will be released this weekend.
Solo (4.7% abv) and Dang (7.2% abv) are described as follows:
Solo is a single barrel of oak-fermented saison bottled completely unadorned and conditioned for seven months in the bottle. It has a low level of carbonation and is the very definition of subtlety—a simple expression of our house yeast cultures in one particular barrel at one particular time.
Dang is a younger blend of hoppy saison that was heavily dry-hopped with Sterling and Saphir (maybe our two favourite hop varietals) and is bursting with herbaceous and floral hop character dovetailing wonderfully with the fermentation flavours from our house yeast.
Both beers will be released tomorrow (February 3rd) in 500 ml bottles that will be available to purchase at the Stillwell Brewing facility in the rear of Propeller Brewing on Gottingen Street from 12:00 to 4:00 PM, and at the bar at Stillwell. A limited amount of Saazbier, a hoppy saison originally released several weeks ago, will also be available at the retail shop while supplies last.
